A very positive surprise to me, especially when reading some of the reviews here. Travelling on my own for a couple of days in NY, this place was just perfect. I loved the room because for the first time for very long, I had a quiet room, where sleep quality was excellent. I travel frequently with work and stay at 4 and 5 star hotels but I have usually huge problems with noisy and complicated heating systems that wake you up during the night. My room was a little cold though, but the owner arranged an extra radiator that worked just perfect. The kitchen facility was also great when you are on your own and when you perhaps do not want to eat all meals out at a restaurant. There are plenty of places to take out food around and you can get many things at the supermarket opposite as well. I had the Afghan room, which faces the back yard. That is probably also a reason why it is quiet. The room would definitely be too small for two people though. The location is a bit far away from the subway station but bus 14D runs every 6-7 min about 200 min away that quickly takes you to the subway station. The shared bathrooms are of course the biggest minus but if you don't want that, you should not book this place from the beginning.
